Danish eSports series Try Hard is the next original production from Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), the Nordic streaming company. Created by Danish director and artist Anders Morgenthaler with Allan Hyde, the eight-episode comedy tells the story of the increasingly questionable efforts of five young gamers to break into the international eSports scene.
Try Hard will premiere exclusively across the Nordic region on NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service in autumn 2020.
Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group Chief Content Officer, commented: “Esports is a dream career for millions of young people in the Nordic region today – and a mystery for almost everyone else. The time is right for a smart and funny scripted series that looks beyond the packed stadiums and multi-million-dollar tournaments to tell a universal story of personal ambition and the search for success. Anders Morgenthaler and Allan Hyde are renowned talents in Denmark, and Try Hard follows our successful Danish comedies Big Lars and Couple Trouble as Viaplay’s latest local streaming experience with broad appeal.”
